One-time actress Danielle Ryan set up her own business, Roads, which over-arches several creative-driven ventures in posh perfumes, arty books and documentary films. However, the combined losses from four Roads subsidiaries in 2015 amounted to €1m, while the combined shareholder deficit at the four firms hit €3m.
Danielle (34) and her brother Cillian (35) inherited their father Cathal's share of billionaire Ryan's fortune. The estate was worth €249m, with around €35m given to charity. Danielle also heads up the Portico group, which handles the family's investments. Cillian breeds horses in Kildare.
